“When you go to somewhere like Haiti, it does make you feel like you want to help,” he said.

“It’s awful what has happened,” the singer recalled, explaining that working with the kids and families who had lost their homes in the natural disaster, inspired him to have his children.

Robbie and Ayda are now parents to four children, Teddy, Coco, Charlton and Beau.

Around 250,000 people died and 1.5 million lost their homes following the earthquake.

It gathered much support from around the globe but the small nation has yet to fully recover.

While on his trip, the Unicef ambassador visited a camp in Jacmel and met refugees living there.

He said at the time: “This earthquake hit children the hardest. They are so vulnerable.

“They’re living day-to-day without the basic things they need and at risk of violence and abuse.

“I don’t know about you, but I think this is wrong and we need to put it right,” he continued.
